Dub Irie 5/1/2006

"This exceptionally good FM radio broadcast recording showcases Little Feat in session at Ultrasonic Studios for WLIR-FM, Long Island, NY. The show is very good, with loads of Lowell's juicy, down-home slide pervasive throughout. The recording is very high quality for 1973. Some tidbits of DJ interviewing Lowell and the boys are on here between songs. Lowell talks about writing "Willin" while in the Mothers of Invention. They perform an absolutely beautiful version of On Your Way Down. The mood of the recording is laid back and there are a handful of people hanging out there, who you can hear clapping between songs. I had this recording in my collection forever and it is so worn out it is a delight to hear this nice version. Arguably the best of the early Feat "boots", perhaps the only other one that rivals it is the other tape from the Ultrasonic on September 19, 1974."

Subject: Ferocious Feat

"This is an unbelievable show both in terms of sound quality and playing and I dare say it is probably the best LF show on the Archive. This is a "must have" show for all you Feat freaks and casual listeners out there. Lowell is sorely missed but left us a body of work that crammed 10 lifetimes of fine playing into his very brief visit on this mortal coil, and this is just one shining example. Do not pass this one by."

Subject: i was there

"This concert is part of a series of tuesday night live radio concerts aired on wlir-fm, 92.7. the station was located a few blocks from ultra sonic recording studios. lowell george stayed after the live show and remixed the tapes till the wee hours. it was later used as a promotional live show by warner bros. those tuesday night concerts are an incredible sonic history of pretty much every first and second tier band of the 70's. from hot tuna to graham nash solo, jethro tull, jackson browne...they all showed up in that small intimate venue. i was there for nearly every one...and it was magic."
